Abercrombie & Fitch Reveals Teen Angst

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF - Get Report) said its second-quarter results won't be good.

At a Piper Jaffray consumer conference taking place in New York, the teen retailer said second-quarter results will not be as strong as those in te first quarter, citing weak consumer demand.

Abercrombie has previously warned about gross margin pressure in the second-quarter.

Shares of Abercrombie fell more than 3% following the news.

Abercrombie & Fitch had been one of the few standouts in the teen sector, which has been grappling with inflated sourcing costs, higher gas prices and discounting.

Teen unemployment has been around 20% and isn't expected to ease amid the summer hiring season.

Rivals Aeropostale (ARO - Get Report) and American Eagle Outfitters (AEO - Get Report) reported disappointing first-quarter earnings results and issued lackluster forecasts last month.
